“Un friendly staff and lack of knowledge and enrichment”

Written on: 02/04/2013

The staff are very un friendly, you walk past and they completely ignore you, especially when you go into the cafe. Animals do not have proper enrichment items, hardly any infact. Some animals enclosures of very small/old. Very odd Place… Read Full Review

“Nice place , well worth going ”

Written on: 14/08/2012 by lavpaige (1 review written)

Came to Hamerton zoo today with my two children, although very very warm it was a good day out with plenty to do, they loved it. My only downside was theres not enough seating around the park for the eldery and pregnant people like myself, also the cafe was very expensive. Other than that it was brilliant… Read Full Review

“A pleasantly time spent at this small value for money...”

Written on: 10/03/2012

My expectations were not great after reading other reviews on this zoo and judging by the admission price being so much more reasonable than other zoos, however I had a thoroughly enjoyable few hours. The animal enclosures were very clean and the animals all looked happy and well cared for. You could get a lot closer to these animals than other zoos I've been to and although there are not a huge variety of animals there there was enough to see to keep my 7 year old more than happy. A downside… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/04/2011

Animals were very clean but because of the way some of the enclosures are set out you can't see the animals. I thought it was expensive and would not travel a long way to go there. It was all over in a couple of hours (and we didn't rush round). Seems they had duplicated some of the animals just to fill up the space. Coffee was expensive particuarly as it comes out of a machine… Read Full Review

The reason they 'duplicate' the animals is because the place is first and foremost a conservation and breeding centre. The tourist attraction part comes second (which is obvious when you try to find a staff memeber or want any food from the cafe). Once you're aware of this you can understand the place a bit better although I think it would benefit from more information about the conservation they do there.

Written on: 18/03/2011

A young zoo, quite small, but with a surprisingly versatile collection of animals. We particularly enjoyed the Lar Gibbons, as there was a 4 month old baby going about with Mum in the enclosure. The zoo is small, but they are improving and expanding, currently building enclosures for several animals, including anteaters. Some beautiful animals there though, Binturong, Aardwolves, Lemurs and Gibbons, along with some of the more 'usual' animals such as Donkeys and Camels. Cheap as chips, and a… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/02/2011

We went to Hamerton Zoo a few days ago but wouldn't go back. I think if it was on a really dry day it would be ok, but one of the big attractions that we had been told about was the great play area. It was waterlogged and we were up to our ankles in muck! All the pieces of equipment had a huge muddy puddle around them. We just found it wasn't great compared to other zoos we have been to. At least we just paid £25.20 for the 4 of us to get in. ( Prices due to go up on 1st March 2011).

Written on: 16/02/2011

It was very cold and raining so all the animals were inside . The ones that were out did not look happy at all . Was a bit annoyed by the fact it was full price in the winter season which was compounded by the miserable woman on reception and the 3.00 pound I paid for two cups of coffee in small paper cups , which came out of the same vending machine we have at work which costs 20p each to both staff and customers. I would think this would be a much better day out in the summer… Read Full Review

“I went to Hamerton Zoo Park last year with a friend...”

Written on: 21/06/2009 by hlrobbo (1 review written)

I went to Hamerton Zoo Park last year with a friend and her 5 year old and was totally bowled over! I went thinking it would be goats, donkeys and the odd reptile, and found to my delight it was like a proper zoo with beautiful tigers, cheetahs, meercats to name but a few.
The surroundings of the eanimals were great too, not just small cages and the like, so it was a pleasant suprise.
Very nice little cafe and the play area went down really well too.
Would thorughly recommend this to everyone… Read Full Review
